Anthology Group CEO Hilary Strong, formerly CEO of the Agatha Christie estate, and Anthology Group founder, Bob Benton are to lead a newly formed venture in the UK to acquire and manage literary estates’ IP for potential TV adaptations.
The New York-headquartered business, helmed by book business veteran Scott Hoffman as CEO with Ted Green, former CEO of RLJ Entertainment serving as Executive Chairman, will purchase copyrights and cash flows from literary estates or living authors seeking liquidity and financial certainty in a rapidly changing book publishing environment.
Strong and Benton will both sit on the board of ILP and will have principal responsibility for properties in the UK and Europe, with particular focus on properties with TV, theatre or film potential. Andrew Minkow joins as CFO and Polly Benton heads up Business Development.
